After working on other projects, it's so great to get back on NuTyX! Simply the best system I've ever used!  ;)   :)    :D

Sometimes, I spread myself too thin...   :P

Thank you Thierry!!!

In my experience, and I don't mean for this to sound like I'm dodging the question  ;D  but I think that the best bases to build from are the ones that you like the best. I prefer NuTyX and Devuan. I do still mess around with Debian periodically though...simply because Debian was the system that I settled on after all of my distro hopping. Of course, then again...Devuan is Debian without systemd.

I'm not just saying this because this is the NuTyX forum, but I really enjoy building a system from the NuTyX base system the most. Thierry has given easy to follow instructions on the NuTyX website. My first NuTyX system was Openbox that I built from the base system. The base system can be downloaded from the Downloads page here...
...scroll down to the .isos located under the heading "For the regular NuTyX user", and click on the one you want to download. Installation is the same as the JWM .iso. It helps to have a smart phone (or another computer) so that you can view the instructions for how to build a desktop on top of the installed base system. It helps to read over the instructions a time or two before actually doing them, because it helps to know which of the instructions you may want to use or not use. The instructions are located here...

The learning curve on NuTyX for me was figuring out what some packages are called in NuTyX compared to other distros; such as, lxterminal is called lxde-terminal in NuTyX. See my note at the end of this post, and I'll show all of the packages that I install in NuTyX for creating the JWM .iso.

RPM distros...
I won't be much help here. The only real experience that I have with an RPM distro is PCLinuxOS. Unfortunately, they don't offer a base system .iso...or they didn't the last time I checked.

I haven't messed with Arch in quite some time, so I'd be rusty on building a system from Arch. However, my friend eznix has some up-to-date instructions on his Sourceforge site if you want to download them and look them over...

I don't know of an install guide. I used to have a video on YouTube showing how to do it, but that was on a previous channel of mine that's no longer available. I can give you some basic-quick instructions that may be of some help.

1. Download the netinstall .iso
2. During the installation, you'll reach the point where you choose a desktop environment to install. REMOVE all of the check marks except the one next to Standard System Utilities. In other words, you won't install a desktop at all.
3. Finish the installation.

When you reboot into the system, you'll only have a full-screen CLI. This is where you install the packages that you want. So...

1. Log in with your username and password
2. Become root (use su, because sudo won't work).
3. Install what you want. You just need to know the names of the packages that you want to install. If you're familiar with package names and what you need, then you'll be fine. If not, you can use apt search to help.

I know that wasn't much help...sorry. If I run across a good guide, I'll let you know.

Okay, here's all of the packages that I install on the NuTyX-JWM .iso. This is just for a reference in case you want to use it when trying to build from a base NuTyX probably won't need all of these packages. Also, some of the packages are there so that xdgmenumaker will work for the applications menu.

That's a great idea...thanks! In fact, I had actually considered including tlp to begin with, but I like for people to be able to install what they want on their system.  :)

It's kind of ingrained into me because of my past experiences...

Back when I was a distro-hopper (and before I learned how to build my own systems from something like NuTyX, a Debian netinstall, Arch, etc.), I would spend tons of time removing preinstalled software and replacing it with what I wanted to use. After a while, it got REALLY tiresome doing that over and over each time I installed a new system...  ;D ...and I thought to myself, "I wish someone would make a base system available so that people could just install what they want."  ;)

Thanks john!
